Let me give you what you’ve been waiting for

DSC 17271 300x201 Let me give you what youve been waiting forElissa and Katie have begun uploading our reports and photos from the Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards and Horn Book at Simmons Colloquium this past weekend. Aside from having to periodically remind people to speak into their microphones, the two days went very smoothly. The highlight for me was a panel I moderated for HBAS with Julie Fogliano, Erin Stead, Mac Barnett, and Jon Klassen about picture book collaboration. I was very nervous about it because we had inadvertently scheduled it for 90 minutes and I thought we would run out of material, and I had hosted a similar panel a couple of years ago and it was a complete dud. But these four were terrific and the time whizzed by. More to come. The picture above is me giving out the trophy bowls to Mac and Jon on Friday night, where I was also glad to learn that it’s Jon Klawsen not Classen, and Chuck Close as in Teddy Pendergrass and not Karen Carpenter.

    KLAWSEN?!
    Happy to know this tidbit. Must recalibrate the pronunciation area of my small brain.
